Total Time 6 hours 10 minutes


  • 6 Lamb shanks
  • 2 large onions
  • 2 heaped teaspoons garlic
  • 3 heaped teaspoons tomato paste
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 2 cups stock
  • Few dashes Worcestershire to taste
  • 2-3 tablespoons flour
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • 1. Brown lamb shanks in slow cooker/pan then remove. Coat lamb in flour, salt and pepper.
  • 2. Brown onions and garlic in slow cooker/pan. Mix through tomato paste for a few minutes.
  • 3. Add wine and stock and bring to a boil.
  • 4. Add the lamb shanks and cook on high until meat falls apart from the bone.
  • 5. Add Worcestershire to pot and stir through.
  • At this stage if your sauce is still runny, add a bit of cornflour to thicken.
  • (Cooking: I would assume 6-8 hours. I have a slow cooker/pressure cooker so it cooked in just over an hour).
  • Served with Slow Cooked Parmesan Mashed Potatoes (from this site) and Steamed Broccoli.
  • Enjoy!
